Manufacturing has been a big part of our area ever since the timber industry went away. We have companies that have rebounded nicely from the recession and are now concerned about the availability of talent in terms of expansions and the aging workforce.
I know there's an interest and enthusiasm for manufacturing that I hear all across the state. And I think there's a sense of revival all around the country for manufacturing. That bodes well for Michigan: Michigan might even be a harbinger for that.
